NCIS season 15 debate: Should Diane Neal return as Abigail Borin?


Abigail BorinThere are many characters within the NCIS universe that we here at CarterMatt have enjoyed seeing for a rather long time now, but Abigail Borin is near the top of the list. When you think about it, Borin is a person who just makes sense within this universe. The NCIS and the CGIS are going to have a close relationship, much in the way that the Navy and the Coast Guard would. There are collaborations out in the field, and therefore you figure that there would be some collaborations within various cases.

Heck, there’s even been times here and there where we’ve advocated for a CGIS spin-off featuring Diane Neal as a lead. Rather than creating more NCIS series at this point that feature roughly the same sort of thing, doesn’t it make some sense to shake things up ever so slightly? We here at CarterMatt like to think so.

For the time being, though, we’d settle for getting another Diane Neal appearance on NCIS season 15 proper, given that it’s actually been a little while now since we’ve seen her turn up on the show. She hasn’t been on the flagship show since 2014, and she was most recently on the New Orleans iteration back in 2014. While we’d be happy to see her appear on either, it’d be nice to get her back on NCIS proper. She’s got a great rapport with Gibbs, she gets some of the characters a little closer to the water (it’s nice to have some geographical change-ups), and it introduces some different workplace dynamics. For example, there are several characters on this show at the moment who we haven’t seen her work with.

In general, our feeling is that it makes sense to see Neal and the CGIS for at least a couple of episodes a season. Obviously, she’s not going to be around for every case, and nor does she need to be. We just like the opportunity to continue branching out to other law-enforcement agencies on the show, and to offer the characters a chance to do something different alongside people that they come to know over time.

Do you want to see Abigail Borin on NCIS season 15?
